Without something more, such as an error message, I can only suggest that you follow the general troubleshooting tips from MS:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906602

Perhaps this will expose an error number that you could look up specifically. Or, you might be able to clear out the update that won't finish and try it again.

Kramd, your image has an error code in it: 80004001. Searching on that and the KB number, I don't see anything that might help. There was just one forum thread where others reported a problem with this update on Win7 x64:

Since the update has to do with codecs, I'm wondering if either of you have installed any DirectShow filters or codec packs under Win7?
